WhatsApp may stop working on your smartphone from January 1, 2020, checkout

ISLAMABAD -WhatsApp may stop working on your smartphone from January 1, 2020, checkout the models where the app would not work.

In what appeared to be a setback for millions around the world, WhatsApp has revealed that its app will stop working on Windows smartphones next week.

The announcement was made in May this year and the deadline has finally arrived aimed at improving security features of the messaging-app that is already battling with serious issues of hacking worldwide from the Israeli company.

As Microsoft will drop support for Windows 10 Mobile in December of this year, the popular WhatsApp messaging app will also stop working on Windows phones after December 31, 2019.

“Because we will no longer actively develop for these platforms, some features may stop functioning at any time,” the company emphasized in a blog post link.

It said: “You’ll no longer be able to use all Windows Phone operating systems after December 31, 2019, and WhatsApp might not be available in the Microsoft Store after July 1, 2019.”

The app will also stop working on Android versions 2.37. and older and iOS 7 and older after February 1, 2020.
